Fleming's Chelsea Flower Show Entry 2013 Plan

Fleming's Chelsea Flower Show Entry 2013

Fleming’s at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Fleming’s Nurseries have presented Australian Show Gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show from 2004 - 2013.  Dubbed ‘The Chelsea Experience’, the annual event involved more than 12 months planning and the collaboration of many of Australia’s most gifted garden designer, constructors, specialists of their fields, artists, media professionals and so much more.  The annual event took planning in detail to extreme with every nut and bolt required to build the garden shipped from Australia to London each year.  Plant sourcing saw many organised trips across Europe and the UK.

The nine gardens presented by Fleming’s are detailed below.  We wish to extend our sincere thanks to everyone that was involved in any way with the planning and delivery of these exciting gardens.

We especially thank all the designers and construction teams who, for many, put their lives and businesses on back burner to turn their attention to this amazing project – and all should be proud of what was achieved.

The project saw Australian Landscape Design hit the media in a big way and did much to showcase Australia’s horticultural talent on a scale never-before attempted.

Here is an overview of each garden presented.  If you require more information about the project overall or an individual year please contact Fleming’s direct on 03 9756 6105.

This garden was awarded BEST IN SHOW and Gold Medal … an impressive way to bid our Chelsea Experience farewell.
